Crunchy Cabbage Salad

Crunchy Cabbage Salad with Spicy Peanut Dressing

This addictive American cabbage salad side dish recipe from “Simple Cooking with Heart” has a zing from jalapenos along with a double-duty peanut power – a peanut butter-infused dressing and a sprinkling of peanuts throughout it. Serve for dinner or bring along to a cookout.


3 tbsp. reduced-fat, smooth peanut butter
4 tbsp. cider vinegar
1 ½ tbsp. water
2 tsp. honey
¼ tsp. salt
1/8 tbsp. ground black pepper
1 jalapeno (finely chopped)
1 red or green bell pepper (quartered, thinly sliced
3 green onions or scallions, chopped (about ½ cup)
1 (14-ounce) bag classic cole slaw mix
¼ cup chopped, unsalted peanuts


1. In a large bowl, add peanut butter, vinegar, hot water, honey, salt, and pepper. Finely chop the jalapeno, seeding it for a less spicy salad. Add jalapeno into bowl. Use a whisk or fork to combine until dressing is smooth.

2. Quarter the bell pepper, removing and discarding the seeds. Thinly slice the bell pepper and chop the scallions. Add both into the bowl, along with the cole slaw mix.

3. Use tongs or a spatula to fully combine the vegetables with the dressing. Chop peanuts and sprinkle over the salad. Let sit a few minutes for flavors to absorb.
